Great Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)

How to Know Your Life Purpose in 5 Minutes, by Adam Leipzig

Answer these questions:

1. Who you are

2. What you do (write, cook, code, etc.. what would you like to teach other people)

3. Who you do it for (children, yourself, others, etc..)

4. What those people want and need

5. How they change as a result.


People seldom do what they believe in.  They do what is convenient, then repent.  --Bob Dylan


We talk of the second coming; half the world has never heard of the first.  --Oswald J. Smith


If you’re going to start something—if it’s worth starting—then it’s worth finishing.  That’s what I live by.  –Marshall Faulk


The game isn’t over until it’s over.  –Yogi Berra


Success requires more backbone than wishbone.  –unknown


So long as there is breath in me, that long I will persist.  For now I know one of the greatest principles on success; if I persist long enough I will win.  –Og Mandino


The noblest search is the search for excellence.  –Lyndon B. Johnson


It is truly said: It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires great strength to decide what to do.  –Chow Ching


You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.  --Eleanor Roosevelt


In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.  --Coco Chanel


Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.  --Dr. Benjamin Spock


Discipline--We cannot get what we’ve never had, unless we’re willing to do what we’ve never done.


Focus--If you chase two rabbits, both will escape.


Risk--Progress involves risk.  You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first.
